Why YOU Should be Eating Cottage Cheese

Adding the right cottage cheese to your diet may be the ticket to a longer, healthier life.

The history of cottage cheese comes from a very interesting story. It was discovered in a cottage in 1831. When the farmer had leftover milk, he did not have good refrigeration, so he would make butter using the cream and milk.

After the butter was made he had some skim milk left. Cottage cheese was founded when the milk was left setting in a warm spot near the stove in the cottage. This allowed the bacterial cultures to change the skim milk into curds and whey. That is how cottage cheese was first discovered. The curds are the lumps and whey the liquid that remains in the cottage cheese when the mixture is left in the refrigerator for a long time.

Adding cottage cheese several times a week with berries and /or fruit may be a lot more beneficial and healthier than you have imagined. It is a superior dieting food while being high in protein and phosphorus with low fat. Researchers say that it may not be listed as a cheese product because it contains many nutrients that are different than normal cheeses, and does not have the fat content. Regular cheeses are not considered as healthy as cottage cheese because of increased fat and preservatives that are mixed in with regular cheese.

Cottage cheese is a real bargain at the grocery store because it is made from leftover milk products and the cost-plus ease of making the product. It takes over a hundred pounds of milk to produce fifteen pounds of cottage cheese. About 1,000 million pounds of cottage cheese is consumed every year in the U.S., Canada, and England. In some countries, it is added to spicy foods to help counteract the hot spicy mixtures on their plates. It has a great taste and can be mixed with nuts, berries, fruits, mangos, kiwis, crushed seeds, and other nutrient foods.

One of the most nutritional values of cottage cheese is its calcium content. One cup of cottage cheese will provide 140 milligrams of calcium.

Calcium is rapidly deposited into the bones of people until they reach about 30 years of age. In older people, calcium is not absorbed easily. In those people, this may result in a calcium deficiency and/or osteoporosis. A dish of cottage cheese with fruit, berries, etc., several times a week helps older people replace the calcium which counteracts osteoporosis.

Calcium also does many things in helping young and older people. LOW CALCIUM will increase the production of calcium channels in the blood vessels and causes an increased risk of high blood pressure. A regular cottage cheese diet will help counteract the high blood pressure problem.

Heart muscles and skeletal muscles need calcium ions to enter and exit the cells to counteract and relax the vessels. These actions are dependent on calcium ion concentrations to balance the cell walls.

In the brain, nerve conduction depends on calcium channels found in the brain and nerve tissues. There is a highly specialized calcium signaling system in the brain. Calcium will also help many other processes in the body including blood pressure regulation, body weight management, insulin release, controlling blood pressure, digestion, and bone formation.

Cottage cheese is a neutral form of calcium or calcium phosphate. It will not be an acidic detriment but a great asset to the body. Many other benefits help the body. It is an anticoagulant health food. It unravels sticky blood, getting more oxygen to the body and reducing high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, heart attacks, and blood clots. It is a great source of vitamin B12. Many vegetarians do not eat red meat and need to be sure they get enough B12, B6, and folate. Cottage cheese helps during intense exercise while helping to make bones stronger.

The fact that cottage cheese has 184 milligrams of phosphorus, along with calcium, makes it a much better bone-building food than milk. Phosphorus plays an essential role in the use of energy in the body.

Another great benefit of cottage cheese is that it helps detox your body. This is a great asset as toxins are the cause of inflammation leading to holes in the intestinal cell walls, or leaky gut. It also helps stabilize blood glucose levels with it being rich in protein.

One of the most important benefits of cottage cheese is a formula used for unraveling sticky (coagulated) blood in cancer patients found by Dr. Joanne Budwig, a German researcher. Dr. Joanne Budwig was a German biochemist, pharmacist, and researcher that made some amazing discoveries with cancer patients. She found that 80 to 90 percent of cancer patients had coagulated (sticky) blood, due to cancer cells starving them of oxygen. Patients could get more oxygen with A COTTAGE CHEESE FORMULA that would unravel coagulated blood. This allowed more oxygen to enter the bloodstream, and help cancer patients cure cancer. First, while looking at the cancer patient’s blood in her microscope, she found that the greenish color was from PLATELET COAGULATION. She called it, “sticky blood.” Knowing that Otto Warburg discovered that cancer cells do not use oxygen to metabolize, she found that the diet also created a situation that throttled them of oxygen, She then found that oxygen starvation in cancer patients came mostly from excess sugar, sugar derivatives, plus omega -6 oils from the grocery shelf. She then went on to produce a COTTAGE CHEESE food mixture that would unravel the sticky blood. It was a mixture of cottage cheese, flaxseed oil, Quark (a fermented cheese), and crushed flaxseeds (crushed in a coffee grinder). My wife and I take this cottage cheese mixture almost every day to prevent “sticky blood.” Sticky blood also occurs in heart disease, strokes, heart attacks, and blood clots in the veins. You can read about it in my book, “Critical Non-invasive Treatment to help Cure Grade III and IV Cancer.”

Cottage cheese does have some drawbacks. If a person has a genetic predisposition to high blood pressure or is eating too much salt, cottage cheese has a HIGH SODIUM CONTENT. People with those problems need to minimize eating cottage cheese. Also, people who are lactose intolerant should shy away from cottage cheese.

One last benefit that needs to be mentioned is that cottage cheese helps a person lose weight. The micellar casein in cottage cheese stays in your system longer, digesting slowly. It reduces hunger and food cravings at night. Cottage cheese has high protein which helps prevent muscle loss. It also helps stabilize blood pressure.

Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. graduated from the University Of Washington School Of Dentistry in 1957. After two years of service in the Air Force, he started a private practice in East Wenatchee, Washington. For the past 45 years his practice has included Orthodontics and TM Dysfunction treatment specializing in temporomandibular pain treatment, headache, head and neck pain control, functional jaw orthopedics, and straight wire orthodontics. Associated with mercury elimination, oral surgery, crowns and bridges is TMJ treatment, diet control, parasite elimination, intestinal cleansing and healing (wellness).

Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has taught advanced courses for dentists on TM Dysfunction treatment, orthodontics and related pain control for more than 30 years. In 1972 he was the first dentist in Washington to use straight wire orthodontics and the first dentist to correct vertical deficiencies in children by placing vertical dimension-primary molar buildups and/or vertical (erupting) appliances. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. was involved with the first group of dentists to recognize lateral tongue splinting in young infants and integrate functional and fixed techniques to correct vertical dimension deficiencies and condylar placement. He is the originator of vertical dimension-primary molar build ups, which help to correct deep bites and Otitus media in children. He invented the Loudon-Chateau Anterior Repositioning Appliance, the functional muscle malocclusion concept, the twelve commandments of occlusion and the vertical overbite domino rule. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has written numerous articles in several American and foreign dental journals and has lectured in over 50 cities and 7 foreign countries on functional jaw orthopedics, fixed wire orthodontics, Otitus media treatment and TM Dysfunction treatment. He has been instrumental in setting up criteria for teaching in the International Association For Orthodontics, including the certified instructor program.

Dr. Loudon is a member of The American Dental Association, Diplomat and Senior Instructor in the International Association for Orthodontics, and is a Diplomat of the American Academy of Pain Management. He also is a member of the American Orthodontic Society.
